SUNRISE, FL--(Marketwired - April 02, 2014) - Bioheart, Inc. (OTCQB: BHRT), a biotechnology company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of autologous cell therapies, announced that it will present at the SELECTBIO 2nd Annual Clinical Translation of Stem Cells on April 21st, 2014. The conference brings together basic scientists, clinician-scientists, as well as medical practitioners/surgeons focusing on studying, characterizing, and deploying various classes of stem cells for therapeutic utility.
Kristin Comella, Bioheart's Chief Scientific Officer, will present a summary of data on the use of stem cells to treat a variety of indications. She will also provide a live demonstration in the "hands-on" clinical practicum. SELECTBIO has partnered with surgeons and a surgery center in the Palm Springs area to offer conference delegates the ability to observe adipose tissue extraction and processing ex vivo in real time.
This "hands-on" demonstration led by leading surgeons in the field is in full compliance with applicable laws and regulations and performed by board-certified surgeons. This conference therefore provides valuable learning and networking experiences for both basic researchers and clinicians alike seeking the most up-to-date information, protocols, and products in this emerging field.
